CALGARY – A Calgary businessman and philanthropist says he paid roughly $750,000 to help free kidnapped journalist Amanda Lindhout in Somalia.Allan Markin, a co-owner of the Calgary Flames, says he didn’t know Lindhout when she was taken hostage in 2008.But the 73-year-old says he believes in helping people.Lindhout and Markin both spoke at a fundraiser last weekend for the Mustard Seed charity, and she surprised Markin by divulging to the crowd that he had saved her life.Lindhout had not publicly revealed before who paid the ransom for her release.She was working as a freelance journalist near Mogadishu when she and an Australian photographer, Nigel Brennan, were taken by armed men.

TORONTO – Shares of Canada Goose Holdings Inc. rose more than 30 per cent on Friday after it reported stronger-than-expected earnings and announced plans for three new stores in North America.Canada Goose stock closed up $18.02 at $78.01 on the Toronto Stock Exchange.The increase came after the luxury parka maker reported a fourth-quarter profit of $8.1 million or seven cents per diluted share compared with a loss of $23.4 million or 23 cents per diluted share a year ago.Revenue for the quarter ended March 31 totalled $124.8 million, up from $51.1 million in the same quarter a year earlier.On an adjusted basis, Canada Goose said it earned $9.9 million or nine cents per diluted share.Economists on average had expected a loss of eight cents per share for the quarter, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon.Canada Goose also announced Friday that it would open new stores in Short Hills, N.J., Montreal and Vancouver this fall as part of its retail expansion plan.The locations are expected to open ahead of the 2018 holiday shopping season.For its full financial year, Canada Goose says it earned $96.1 million or 86 cents per diluted share on $591.2 million in revenue. That compared with a profit of $21.0 million or 21 cents per share on $403.8 million in revenue in the previous year.Companies in this story: (TSX:GOOS)
Apple‘s iPad has not necessarily been as big of a success for Cupertino as an e-reader as they hoped: the ubiquitous Amazon Kindle platform has steadily trounced iBooks. One exception, though, is when it comes to magazines. The Kindle platform does really well with plain text, since it’s easy to reformat that on the fly for any device capable of running the Kindle software, whether that’s the iPad, an Android phone, a Kindle e-reader or a PC running the Kindle application. The same can’t be said for magazines, though, which are thriving on the iPad as App Store purchases. They can count on every iPad having the exact same screen dimensions and interface. Not so Kindle.AdChoices广告Still, Amazon’s at least trying to change all that by enticing magazine publishers to bring their rags to at least the Kindle series of e-readers. They’re trying to attract these publishers with the tasty 70/30 revenue split: if publishers want to start publishing their magazines for the Kindle, they’ll give 70% of the money directly back. The only drawbacks? Amazon requires all versions of the periodical to work across every Kindle e-reader yet made, in all geographical regions where the publishers has the rights to distribute. Not too onerous, but somehow I doubt it’ll bring publishers flocking to the Kindle: that black-and-white display is just too hard to port a full-color magazine over to. Maybe it’ll all come together with the Kindle Color?Read more at Amazon
Le déclin de la mémoire avec l’âge pourrait être réversibleSelon de récents travaux, une protéine appelée RbAp48 serait impliquée dans le déclin de la mémoire avec l’âge. Cette découverte pourrait ouvrir la voie à de nouveaux traitements potentiellement capables d’inverser la détérioration de la mémoire.Et si l’on parvenait à bloquer ou même inverser le déclin de la mémoire ? C’est l’espoir que crée une étude publiée cette semaine par des chercheurs de l’université Columbia de New York. En effet, ceux-ci ont découvert qu’une carence en RbAp48, une protéine présente dans l’hippocampe, (une région du cerveau) jouerait un rôle fondamental dans la perte de mémoire associée au vieillissement.Pour arriver à cette conclusion, les scientifiques, emmenés par le Dr Eric Kandel (co-lauréat du prix Nobel de médecine en 2000), ont étudié des cellules cérébrales humaines de personnes décédées et celles de souris. Au départ, les scientifiques estimaient que la perte de la mémoire était un des premiers symptômes de la maladie d’Alzheimer. Mais, en procédant à une analyse génétique de cellules provenant d’une région de l’hippocampe (le gyrus dentelé), ils ont constaté que le gène RbAp48 (qui produit la protéine du même nom) était présent en plus faible quantité chez les personnes les plus âgées. En testant ce même gène chez des souris et en bloquant son activation, ils ont retrouvé les mêmes problèmes de mémoire chez les souriceaux que chez les rongeurs âgés. En revanche, une fois rétabli le fonctionnement de ce gène, la mémoire des jeunes souris est redevenue normale. Mieux, les scientifiques ont augmenté l’expression du gène RbAp48 afin d’accroître son expression dans le cerveau des vieilles souris, lesquelles auraient retrouvé la mémoire de leur jeunesse.Perte de mémoire et Alzheimer, deux maladies distinctes À lire aussiUne application pour lutter contre la dépressionLes chercheurs affirment qu’en traitant la carence de la protéine RbAp48, il est possible de rendre réversible la détérioration de la mémoire. Aussi, cette étude est la plus forte indication à ce jour que la détérioration de la mémoire avec l’âge et la maladie d’Alzheimer sont des pathologies distinctes. La première est réversible en traitant la carence de la protéine en question, tandis que la seconde reste incurable, expliquent les auteurs de l’étude publiée dans la revue Science Transnational Medicine et reprise par l’AFP. “Ces résultats ont des implications potentielles pour le diagnostic et le traitement des troubles de la mémoire”, conclut le Dr Kandel dans un communiqué.Le 30 août 2013 à 12:04 • Maxime Lambert
Reed Business Information today said that it has reduced its overall workforce by 7 percent in association with the company-wide reorganization it announced last week. In addition, the publisher has instituted a hiring and salary freeze for 2009.The layoffs and salary freeze are “in response to the impact tough economic conditions,” a spokesperson wrote in an e-mail to FOLIO:. “If the financial outlook materially improves in subsequent quarters, the company will revisit its decision.”According to the New York Times, one of those laid off is Publishers Weekly editor-in-chief Sara Nelson. The RBI spokesperson declined to comment on specific layoffs.Last week, RBI reorganized into market-focused groups: business media, entertainment, construction and BuyerZone, a lead generation business. The reorganization, RBI said, was a result of Chicago division president Jeff Greisch’s announcement that he is leaving the company at the end of the first quarter. A company spokesperson declined to discuss layoffs at the time of the announcement.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a new treatment option for patients with moderate to severe central sleep apnea—and it won’t leave you with unsightly CPAP mask marks.The Remedē System is an implantable device that stimulates a nerve in the chest responsible for sending signals to the diaphragm to stimulate breathing.A common disorder that causes pauses in breathing or shallow breaths while snoozing, sleep apnea leaves patients tired, and can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, obesity, diabetes, and heart failure.AdChoices广告Aside from various lifestyle changes (weight loss, quitting smoking) or surgery, the prevailing treatment is a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine, which requires a mask be worn on the mouth and nose.But perhaps even worse than sleep apnea itself are the lines and creases covering the wearer’s face the next morning.The Remedē System implant stimulates breathing in sleep apnea patients (via FDA)Enter Remedē System: The battery-powered pulse generator sits under the skin in the upper chest, connected to thin wires threaded through veins near the phrenic nerve. Small electrical stimulus—programmed using an external controller—make the diaphragm muscle contract, causing the user to take a breath.Two modes allow the patient (or, more likely, the physician) to set the system to generate pulses at a fixed rate (asynchronous therapy) or only when it detects a pause in breathing (synchronous therapy).“This implantable device offers patients another treatment option for central sleep apnea,” according to Tina Kiang, acting director of the Division of Anesthesiology, General Hospital, Respiratory, Infection Control, and Dental Devices in the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health.In a six-month clinical trial of 141 adult patients, more than half of people with the Remedē System reported at least 50 percent reduction in frequency and severity of apnea episodes, versus 11 percent in a control group (sans an active implant).There is no word on the new treatment’s availability or pricing (for reference, CPAP machines range from $200 to upwards of $2,000). It is also unclear whether the implant is be a one-time procedure, or needs to be replaced every so often.The FDA did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

‘PUBG’ Story Trailer Teases the Unknown PlayerJordan Bans ‘Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds’ Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds launched on Xbox One last week to a rocky start. Despite being marketed as a Game Preview title, many treated it as a full release and (naturally) let their frustrations out on social media. Even with its notable issues, PUBG has become a hit on Xbox One. In just two short days, the game has reached a million players.This accomplishment was announced by none other than PlayerUnknown himself, Brendan Greene, on Twitter.Over 1M players tried @PUBATTLEGROUNDS within 48hrs of launch on @Xbox Game Preview! This is humbling, so thank you all!It’s the start of the road on console for us. We‘ve lots to improve & update over the coming months & w/ your feedback we’ll make a great game together!— PLAYERUNKNOWN (@PLAYERUNKNOWN) December 15, 2017Microsoft is fully aware of PUBG‘s technical issues. Xbox head Phil Spencer took to Twitter to assure users that Microsoft is working with Bluehole to fix the game.Yea, met with CH and the PUBG team last night, we are seeing feedback and will continue to update. Thanks for the help in GP.— Phil Spencer (@XboxP3) December 15, 2017PUBG has been available on PC for many months now. It has sold an astonishing 20 million units on that platform. Like the Xbox One X version, this edition of PUBG is also unfinished. While users have experienced their fair share of hiccups on PC, things aren’t nearly as bad as they are on Xbox One.Even with all of the technical hitches, many Xbox One owners are still enjoying PUBG on their favorite platform. Things may be dicey now, but I’m sure the game will get better overtime. Will it ultimately sell as much as its PC counterpart? It’s hard to say. After all, no one could have predicted PUBG‘s success. It may end up being Xbox One’s biggest game in the near future. We’ll just have to wait and see. Stay on target

In 2011, more than 100 people were killed at a hilltop shrine in the southern state of Kerala.This is the second time people have died in a stampede at the same spot. In 2006, around 50 people died on or around the previous wooden bridge, prompting authorities to replace it with a bigger, two-lane concrete span.Adding to the chaos, police wielding sticks charged the pilgrims to try to contain the crowd. That prompted people to retaliate by throwing stones at the officers, said Dilip K. Arya, deputy inspector general of police. One officer was badly injured.Relatives crowded a state-run hospital to collect bodies and search frantically for loved ones among the injured people being treated there. Comments Share New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies Arizona families, Arizona farms: working to produce high-quality milk Arya told reporters Monday that 115 people had died in the stampede. He expected the toll to rise because some of the injured were in critical condition.The state has ordered a judicial inquiry. Engineers say the bridge was not damaged, and images from the scene showed vehicles and people using the bridge after the stampede occurred.Prime Minister Manmohan Singh expressed “deep sorrow and shock over the loss of lives” and asked local officials to help the injured and the families of the dead.“On this day of festivities, our hearts and prayers are with the victims and their families,” his office said in a statement.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

I don’t know how I escaped.”The stampede killed 115 people, mostly women and children. Some were crushed to death, while others jumped off the bridge to escape and drowned. Scores more were injured.
Singapore Airlines, Qantas Airways and civil aviation officials from Hong Kong, Taiwan and South Korea have said that they will abide by China’s new aviation rules.

If you’re flying with kids you might be worried about arriving in one piece. What if they act up, or spend the whole flight screaming? What if you land more frazzled than ready for fun? We could say “stuff ’em”… Last year, American company Terrafugia unveiled its car/plane hybrid called the ‘Transition’, which it expected to transform the world of personal flight. At the recent New York International Auto Show, Terrafugia revealed that Transition had completed its maiden flight in New York State. Would-be owners of Transition may soon be able to nip down the shops in their new toy as soon as the end of this year. Terrafugia have already taken 100 orders for their creation, which retails at a cool $279,000.In a further exciting development, Dutch firm (PAL-V personal air and land vehicle) announced that its very own ‘flying car’ had successfully completed its maiden test flight. Yes, you wait ages for a flying car, and then two come along at once! Rather than a car-plane, the PAL-V is more like a car-helicopter. According to the promo video (see below), it ‘drives like a sports car’, looks like a stumpy bobsleigh, and can take to the skies without the need for a long runway – and all ‘within existing international laws, for both flying and driving’. It’ll set you back a mere $300,000, so not much more than its competitor. First deliveries are expected in 2014, when the long-cherished dream of a flying car will finally become a reality. Well, that’s what the brochure says.You may think that you can beat the traffic jams with a new flying car, but flying light aircraft over urban areas is generally restricted so don’t expect to be doing a Chitty Chitty Bang Bang anytime soon.
